Question Web Service Get List ID with VBSCRIPT to filter on for UpdateListItems

Hi, I'm using Web Service with VBScipt

I can no longer go Title to do my filtering. I need to determine the ID to the filtering.
My UpdateListItems Method works when i have Title or ID (which is now unkown), Then I used the FileRef
dates the columns where items are listed
batch = batch + "  <Field Name='ID'>3</Field>"
batch = batch + "  <Field Name='FSObjType'>1</Field>"
batch = batch + "  <Field Name='Vendor'>8888888</Field>"
batch = batch + "  <Field Name='Site'>8888888</Field>"
---Updates document within Library then filter works on FileRef
---but it works only when renaming the document within the folder. 
batch = batch + "  <Field Name='FSObjType'>1</Field>"
batch = batch + "  <Field Name='FileRef'>http://.../Test/temp4.txt</Field>"
batch = batch + "  <Field Name='BaseName'>temp4.txt</Field>"
Please are there any other options i can filter on to get the item on item list level or perhaps the GETID method as last resort

I have started with the GETLISTITEMS Method to return the ID, my filter works & i can see all the values for that specific Item:
batch = "<Query><Where><Eq><FieldRef Name='FileLeafRef'/><Value Type='Folder'>AB Test</Value></Eq></Where></Query>"
wfields = "<viewFields><FieldRef Name='ows_ID'/></viewFields>"
request =  request + "<soap:Envelope xmlns:xsi='http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance'"
request =  request + "            xmlns:xsd='http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema'"
request =  request + "            xmlns:soap='http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/soap/envelope/'>"
request =  request + "  <soap:Body>"
request =  request + "  <GetListItems xmlns='http://schemas.microsoft.com/sharepoint/soap/'>"
request =  request + "              <listName>" & list & "</listName>"
request =  request + "              <query>" & batch & "</query>"  
request =  request + "              <ViewFields>" & strviewfields & "</ViewFields>" 
request =  request + "  </GetListItems>"
request =  request + "  </soap:Body>"
request =  request + "</soap:Envelope>"
But how do i retrun the 'ows_ID' value & insert to Vbscript Var

Please Assist!

Default Web service get list ID

Generally web applications in SharePoint are created using the out-of-box functionality provided within Central Administration. But because of some client's needs there might be a requirement of creating these web applications within a custom utility solution. This functionality can be achieved programmatically using Microsoft SharePoint APIs. By this, one can easily create a web application & associate a content database to it, register the web application in the IIS server, create an associated application pool and define different credentials for the web aplication.
